New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski took to Twitter on Thursday to let everyone know he’s a fan of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry. That and he loves watching brawls.

Gronk is referring to the fireworks that took place on Wednesday night between the two teams at Fenway. The benches cleared twice, with punches being thrown during the second incident.

Tensions ran so high at Fenway last night, a couple of media members nearly came to blows in front of a bewildered Tyler Austin. https://t.co/KudJTaBBX5

The Yankees and Red Sox at each other’s throats is good for baseball. It brings fans and haters alike together for hours at a time. It’s the real beauty of the game that was once America’s pastime.
